I joined Hodge Jones & Allen LLP in 2009 and became a Partner in 2014. I specialise in all areas of Claimant personal injury work, including employers liability, occupiers liability, road traffic accidents including pedestrians and cyclists and highways claims. I also have extensive experience in dealing with accidents that have occurred on aeroplanes, when on a package holiday and accidents that occur in prison. I have a particular interest in dealing with repetitive strain injury claims and cases involving multiple defendants.
I have recently been appointed Transport Secretary for the APIL Transport group.
